Test results and Self-worth

Being in the school environment, once again, has made me realise the impact test results can have on a student.

Negativity and Toxicity

Ready for Adulthood? 

Are we ready for the adult world? Are we ready for the pressure and responsibilities that come with it? Are we ready for adulthood?
